She will share specific color information, bring you up to speed on which texture mediums to use for which tasks, and introduce you to High Flows and Open Acrylics. Collage, Painting, Printmaking, Skins.  Prepare to be astonished.


*Surfaces to work on - rigid substrates - could be canvas panels, wood panels or gesso panels, whichever you prefer. If you are traveling, it is easiest to bring flat panels that don't have a cradle behind them. Bring from 2-4 in any size up to 12x12. If you work fast, bring more, if you work slow, bring less, but be prepared to work back and forth across more than one piece.

*Bring your favorite Golden Fluid Acrylics - a couple colors only.  There will be will bring a lot of additional colors so you can develop a specific palette around colors you already own.

*Brushes suitable for painting. Inexpensive brushes (such as the ones by Robert Simmons) work fine and Shader and Angle Shader brushes about an inch wide are Mary Beth;s preference. Bring a glue brush also.

*Water container, apron, gloves, pencil, scissors, small cutting mat, palette knife (if you already own one) and a small selection of collage items.

*Your $20 kit fee includes use of a wide variety of Golden products including paints and texture mediums. There will also be additional substrates for everyone to try including Watercolor paper, printmaking paper and Claybord. Plus there will be pencils, markers, Gelli plates, deli paper and other items to share. If you happen to own a small Gelli Plate and wish to bring it, feel free.
The fee is $250 for both days and evening activities. Contact Jane Powell at Random Arts to register.
